I've mentioned the KC Willis Collage Camp class I sign up for. Well KC posed a challenge to us that I couldn't resist. To make a fabric collage using all recyled/re-used material. Nothing purchased. My creative muse jumped up, hands waving in the air, all excited like, shouting...me, me...let me do it! So what are you gonna do when they are that persistent but let them have their way.
So everything used in this piece I found in and around my home and studio. The back is part of an old quilt top, other layers are parts of old jeans, old pillow fabric, vintage curtains and vintage chenille bedspread. I embellished with parts of an old chambray shirt...the button strip and the cuff for the quote. So if not toally vintage, everything is totally old. Even the fabric I printed the image on is part of an old pillowcase I ran through my laser printer. Okay, so the ink is new and purchased. ;-)
And just like the challenges over at Mind Wide Open I did this not because of the marvelous prize (a KC Willis original) but because it was just so much darned fun, got me outside my box and gave me some me time in my studio. And that's what counts in the end....exciting my muse.
